There is very little practical use to limit the number of available inodes on
an ext4 filesystem and the make_ext4fs utility is able to calculate useful
defaults by itself.

Keep the option but make it empty by default to allow make_ext4fs to calculate
the optimal number of inodes when generating an ext4 file system.
